Bond Tech Glue- Bond Tech Primer

For high performance  bonding with polyofines (PE and PP) Without a pre-treatment homopolar      synthetics such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), cannot glued permanently with cyanocylate glue. The surface energy of these polyalefins ranges around 30mN/m, which leads to problems in moistening these materials with glue. In practice however, it is just these materials that      are frequently employed because of their excellent properties. Still, when      glued together, the results were usually either not satisfactory or else it  was not possible at all.  

 Until now, an  improvement of the surface adhesion of materials difficult to glue had been  achieved in practice through very expensive methods.  

 An oxidation of the  surface of the synthetic material can be achieved through singeing, flaming   with a light, etching or mordant as well as by employing the corona of the low-pressure plasma method. 

 Apart from the usually  very high investment costs, there is often another important disadvantage      when gluing with cyanoacylate glues; in the course of certain methods there is a possibility of acidic cleavage products originating and remaining on      the surface (depending on the material). These residues can prevent the  hardening of cyanoacylate glues or may cause a distinct deceleration of the  process. Often the activity of the pre-treated surfaces decreases within a  short period of time, so disruption of continuous productions may lead to  deviations in quality with regard to the joining (decrease in tenacity).    Complicated joint constructions, i.e. corner sections with larger  depressions, often can not be activated through conventional procedures.      

 Due to the   unsatisfactory results connected with the pre-treatment procedures mentioned  above, alternative methods have been sought for the efficient gluing of  homopolar materials with cyanoacrylate glue. 

 Bond Tech Primer now  offers a practical possibility to gain, by simple means, a high degree of  tenacity when gluing homopolar materials with cyanoacrylate glues. The low viscous solution si applied to the materials that are usually difficult to glue. after the short time it takes the nonpolluting solvent to evaporate, a  quick and after the final hardening high-performance and non-ageing joining   can be performed with Bond Tech Glue. the pre-treated surfaces do not have  to be processed immediately, the hardening will not be impaired by an  intermediate storage of several hours.
